                          Sandstone crystal meaning

                          Sand is gritty and sometimes abrasive material and sandstone helps us to get rid of what is bothering and irritating us. Sandstone will help you to see the truth and recognise when someone is being deceitful. It reveals what is hidden, helping you see even the smallest act of dishonesty. It will lift tension and help brighten dark moods.

                          It can help you to concentrate and focus you mind, and for this reason is useful to wear during meditation or at times when deep thought is required.

                            Turquoise crystal meaning

                            Beautiful turquoise is a merging of the energies of Father Sky and Mother Earth. It is said to have the magical property of reflecting the state and mood of the person wearing it, and indeed it does seem to change from light to dark depending on where and how it is worn. It is a stone of wisdom, helping you to tap into the knowledge of your ancestors and guides.

                            Turquoise also symbolises truth. It is useful to wear it when you are being unfairly blamed or bullied because it will help people to see error of their ways. You will feel empowered to be your authentic and true self when wearing turquoise. It will allow you to reclaim your confidence and feel free from the expectations of others.
